Hi, An orbital wave function is written as product of Radial function and Angular function. The Radial wave function depends upon n and l quantum number, and Angular wave function depends upon l and m_{l} quantum number. ψ = R(r).A(θ,Φ) Radial function depicts the size of the orbital and angular function determines the orientation of lobes of orbital. Node is a region where, probability of finding an electron is zero. So, Radial node is the point where, ψ = A(θ,Φ) for all R and it can be shown as and Angular node is the point where, ψ = R(r) for all A and it can be shown as Note: The points which meet the axis are nodal points. Hope this information is helpful. Posted by Kanika Dalal(MeritNation Expert)on 22/5/12 This conversation is already closed by Expert
